UK walk-on quarterback Kolbe Langhi enters transfer portal

With Joey Gatewood joining the fold, one of Kentucky’s backup quarterbacks may be leaving the program. Preferred walk-on Kolbe Langhi, a native of Hopkinsville, has entered the transfer portal according to Chris Jung.

Langhi committed to Kentucky in February 2018. He is Christian County’s all-time leading passer with 9,002 career yards and 101 total touchdowns. As a three-star recruit, he drew interest from Vanderbilt, UofL, and even Lane Kiffin, then Alabama’s offensive coordinator, before accepting a preferred walk-on spot from the Kentucky coaching staff.

With Terry Wilson, Joey Gatewood, Sawyer Smith, Amani Gilmore, Nik Scalzo, Walker Wood, Keegan Sullivan, and Patrick Delahunty all on next year’s roster, this move makes total sense for Langhi. Best of luck to him moving forward.

    I don’t know anything about this situation, but if he was drawing that kind of big program interest and has those kind of high school numbers surely he had a long list of scholarship offers from smaller programs. I wonder if he just wanted to give it a shot for a year at his favorite school growing up. See if he could make an impression and if not then move onto one of the smaller schools.

    Maybe that’s not it, but if it was I really like the thought process behind it in this day and age where QB transfers are so common. Why not spend one year enjoying the school you grew up rooting for. There’s still plenty of time (4 years) to go somewhere and play QB, and you’ll always have your one year at UK.

    Good luck to him and I think he will thrive somewhere else

    Wonder what the QB situation looks like at Murray St?

    With Coach Hood being hired as head coach, he certainly would know what Langhi could bring to the table.

      Personally I will be relieved when Allen signs. With the media handing the starting job to Gatewood, you have to wonder what effect that has had on Allen. No doubt Stoops has had to assure him that he will be given a fair chance— just sayin!

    Yeah I understand that Gatewood will only have 2 years of eligibility but QB’s just don’t come in anymore, that are willing to wait their turn.

    Yeah young QB’s are having more success than ever at a young age, but with that position it only takes one big year to earn a massive pay day. In year 3, a patient person, could be ready to come in an make a big impact and not have any bad tape of himself out there failing as a player not quite ready for fans and NFL execs to pick apart. Also, as we’ve seen #2 on the depth chart is a position that still gets PT with a running QB.

    I seen Langhi play in high school on about 3 different occasions and he was definitely impressive very big kid 6’6 bout 235 but very mobile for his size and has a rifle of an arm I do suspect Murray or somewhere even like WKU he could really succeed ….wish him well
